Yesterday the calendar said September 11th.
As we were planning our week and putting things on the calendar whenever I would look at Saturday there it was.
I am amazed that a date can hold so much feeling. Just like the feeling I have seeing April 19th.
It gives me insight to what others feel about certain dates in their life. Why they have elation or despair or grief when dates on the calendar pass. Why whole weeks can be engulfed in emotion leading up to a date or the weeks following.
I hope I can use this. That I can remember how I feel about these dates and have more compassion towards others and their dates.

I know what you mean. December 17th is my Mom's birthday and she passed away on January 1. I actually do okay on both of those days, thanks to a loving husband and some fun traditions we've made up. But, both of those dates are jam packed with emotion for me.
